Pia Degermark
Date of Birth
24 August 1949, Bromma, Stockholm Sweden.
Mini Biography

Director Bo Widerberg first spotted the teenage Pia Degermark in a newspaper photo, dancing at a party with with the Swedish Crown Prince Carl Gustaf. He career seemed assured after he cast her as the lead in Elvira Madigan (1967/I), which debuted at Cannes and garnered critical and commercial acclaim. Degermark was heralded as the "new Ingrid Bergman" and offers came flooding in. However, in 1971 she married the producer Pier A. Caminnecci (in whose film Gebissen wird nur nachts (1971) she appeared). The marriage produced a son, Cesare, but ended two years later. Degermark then emigrated to the USA, but returned to her native Sweden in 1979, by now gravely ill and suffering from anorexia. Her acting career now over, she founded the organisation 'Alfta', devoted to the aid of other women suffering from the disease. She was eventually taken to court, accused of false claims and the organisation collapsed. It was at this time that Degermark became homeless and addicted to drugs - an addiction that led her to use fraudulent cheques in her desperation for money, and she was eventually committed to Stockholm's state prison.

I tried looking for some photos of her but couldn't find any, only the ones that are in the Edie Sedgwick thread.

Oh I don't know, I only found out she was two days ago. I think I like her so much probably because she looks so much like Edie lol.

Awesome thread, loonaka!

I don't know what her fashion sense what like off-film, but in Elvira Madigan she is simply breathtaking. I've never seen an actor/ess speak so much simply with their eyes. I believe she won the Cannes award for best actress for this film. Anyway, she's the one who inspired me to grow my hair out long and bleach it blonde, and of course, wear lovely black ribbons in it. (wink!)

Here is a youtube video with clips from the film. The background music is terrible (they should with the original score of Mozart's Concerto No. 21), but she looks stunning nonetheless!

French Cruller you're the one who told me about her first, and I downloaded Elvira Madigan and she's just stunning in it. I love the way she speaks, like a mix of danish and swedish...

Elvira Madigan is one of my favorite movies. So beautiful and ethereal in that film.

Such a shame about her real life though.
